This weeks freebie comes to us from Yellow Design Studio. Opened in 2004, Yellow Design Studio is devoted to creating high quality typefaces and artwork. The studio consist of two people, Ryan and Rena. Ryan focuses on creating fonts and Rena focuses on artwork. GistX is the solid, letterpress printed version of Gist inline slab from Yellow Design Studio. The family consists of 12 fonts total: Light, Regular and Bold (upright and slanted), each with two different distress versions. GistX is a collision between slab-serif and indie script. The standard characters have the most traditional letterforms, while alternates add funk with swashes and script-inspired curves. The result is a unique modern slab with a vintage/retro vibe. We would like to thank Ryan and Rena once again for giving away this outstanding typeface. We hope you’ll download it and create something beautiful. Be sure to check out their other fonts on their Creativemarket shop. Enjoy! Download

It is truly amazing just how far your creativity can go with the use of technology. Where you can already do so much with the traditional paper and pencil, you can even do so much more once your artwork is given a digital twist. The Traditional versus the Modern Artist Of course, a lot of traditional artists scoff at the thought of letting modern science touch their art. After all, to the classic eye, nothing beats the graceful strokes of the brush evident through the way the paint blends with the canvas. The way that charcoal roughly connects with paper also shows a hint of raw beauty and passion, something that even the best photographers may not be able to capture with digital images, and should be appreciated in the flesh. When you think about it though, opening your eyes to a completely different level of beauty could make you appreciate digital art as well. With the right tools and the right equipment, artists can showcase just as much passion and raw beauty through digital means.

There are many different ways to take a picture, shoot a portrait, snap a shot. Whatever you want to call it, there are a variety of techniques to use when capturing the perfect shot. Looking to utilize Mother Nature’s splendour for the right image? Shooting an outdoor portrait gives the photographer even more options. While there is no one way to take the perfect outdoor portrait, there are a few core guidelines to keep in mind. Finding a Subject Before you pick your location, you will need to choose your subject. Often, we seek to capture a glimpse of vulnerability—a raw look at the subject. The subject you choose will largely determine the mood conveyed in your portrait. Choosing a Theme If there is a theme going on then choosing the right place is crucial. Taking family portraits can be done just about anywhere, but should reflect the subjects’ personalities. The picture’s backdrop, like the subject, conveys another layer of meaning to the photograph. Choose a background that will reflect the subject’s personality.
